Anna Matilda McNeill Whistler lived a few doors down from us and it is extremely likely that, as our house was built in 1861, the great artist himself walked past it on a number of occasions. I found her memorial in the Garden of Rest - it is now buried in the ground but still perfectly legible. I hope to expand this post at some point in the future.
